He questioned Obi’s achievements as Anambra governor, claiming the money he saved was child’s play to what Rivers governor Nyesom Wike spends.
“There is a scammer in town. Peter Obi is a scamming people with lies and people are believing him.
“This is nauseating. Peter Obi was a governor of Anambra state for eight years.
“Anambra state is one of the advantageous states in Nigeria because of the people. They have Onitsha, Awka, Nnewi. These are the biggest goldmines in Nigeria after Lagos, Port Harcourt and Aba.
“They said he saved seventy-something billion. What is seventy-something billion? The money that Wike toys with in Rivers.
“How would you compare Obi with Tinubu or Atiku? What is his antecedent? Lies. You are showing documents. Who showed that you rejected the lands? All these small small scams, who dem wan do now?”
